Plum preserves

The plums in my garden are ripening so why not make plum preseve.

Here is an easy recipe.

1 kg plums

rinsed and diced

350-500 g sugar

add a little by little so you get the eweetness you want

3 vanillapods

Cook the diced plums tender,

add sugar and vanillapods.

Let everything cook until the sugar is desolved.

Pour into sterilized jars and enjoy:)

Try to fill the jars as much as possible without the preserve touching the edge of the jar, it will keep better  and longer.

Lime curd

I have probably mentioned it before, we do love lime, spesially hubby.
So I thought to try to make lemon curd with lime instead.
